According to Teslarati, Tesla’s chief car designer Franz von Holzhausen said in a podcast that three years after CEO Elon Musk’s announcement, the Tesla Cybertruck has been finalized and will be put into production soon.
The Tesla Cybertruck debuts in 2019 and has been delayed several times by the epidemic and supply chain issues. Despite Elon Musk’s repeated statements that the design has been finalized, Tesla continues to fine-tune it as it prepares for early production in mid-2023. Batch production will take place at the end of this year.
McCaffrey also mentioned that production will begin less than six months from now, and that Tesla’s chief designer has not denied nor indicated that something will get in the way of the initial manufacturing phase.
Tesla has made great progress in Cybertruck production over the past few months, including the delivery of IDRA Giga Press machines at its Texas superfactory. Tesla will produce Cybertruck using IDRA’s 9,000-ton Giga Press, which may have arrived at the Texas plant earlier this month.
